For the serious dancer, there is only one choice.
“For the serious dancer, there is only one choice.” Footlights Dance & Theater Boutique is a destination dancewear retailer offering expert shoe fittings, unmatched product selection and incomparable customer service to dancers across the Mid-Atlantic region. Our pointe shoe fittings are what set us apart and folks have been traveling far and wide since 1991 to get the “Footlights” fit. We carry the most renowned brands including So Danca, Suffolk, Bloch, Russian Pointe, Capezio, Grishko, Gaynor Minden and so many more.
And we’re not just pointe shoes! Visit one of our locations today in Frederick, MD, Silver Spring, MD or Alexandria, VA to see and experience all that Footlights has to offer. Why three locations? We want Footlights to be convenient for you so that you shop our stores for that excellent fit rather than “guessing” with online options. From ballet and jazz shoes, to body wear and accessories, Footlights can outfit any dancer at any age. We pride ourselves in treating all our customers like family, giving the best care to make sure each and every dancer walks out the door having found what they need to pursue their dance passions whilst receiving excellent customer service.
This website was developed for each of you to see what a treasure of dance wonderment our stores are for the dancer’s needs. The photographs you will find here, from our two favorite photographers Julie Hipkins and Bill Adkins, are just the beginning of what we have to offer you in our stores. We want to meet each of you in person. If that is an impossibility, check out our always in progress online store at the above tab. You can order online, and better yet, give us a call so we can answer all the questions you might have.
